Things are starting to happen regarding the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie as Variety is reporting that Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch are both in talks to write the script for the live action film. The film is being produced by Legendary and Universal Pictures will handle the distribution outside of Japan. Here’s some more information on both of the talented writers being pitched with the task of writing the film.
Perlman cut her teeth in Marvel’s writers’ room, penning such comic-book hits such as “Thor” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Marvel has now tasked her with penning the “Captain Marvel” film with “Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve, as well as helping to develop the third “Sherlock Holmes” movie with Team Downey.
Hirsch created Disney’s cult favorite “Gravity Falls” and is repped by UTA and Jared Levine at Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Entertainment Law Firm.
